What a great restaurant. We hadn't booked so had to come back later and they just squeezed us in which was lucky as it was delicious. Staff where extremely helpful especially with an awkward 11yr olds diet requirements and where happy to redo salad with no dressing after serving it. I had the pork which was amazing. Definitely recommend this,... More

Wonderful meal. Order the mussels! The most flavorful mussels during our trip in croatia. We sat near the entrance so there was a constant breeze which was helpful due to the heat of july. My wife had a great truffle dish.

A delicious lunch, with friendly service in a quiet, secluded alley not far from the Square where the market is.

It was a very rainy evening and we were very happy to have found such a nice little restaurant. It's located in a narrow alley three minutes from Rector's Palace. We ordered tuna steak with french fries and grandma's cake, which all turned out to be amazingly delicious! Compared to other restaurants nearby, the dishes were more typical and more... More

We stumbled across this great restaurant and were very grateful. Happy to see a slightly different menu to all the other places in Dubrovnik. We enjoyed the quiet courtyard meaning and the food was delicious!

This charming restaurant is tucked away in one of the side streets in the old town and offers a mix of good meats, seafood and wine. The service was very good and the food was good, but unspectacular. Prices were in the higher side. Recommended if you want a menu with a good selection of different types of dishes.

It is a simple place in a hidden alley. If you ate looking for a quiet spot for 2 or family, it is really a good choice. Away from the neighboring crowd, the place offers a limited menu with no outstanding interest. But it is all right.

Took the family to this small open air restaurant sites in a courtyard off one of the side streets. Broad selection of fish and meat dishes, with the octopus carpaccio being a standout among the starters, and the tasty Kublai Khan Beefsteak devoured feverishly by the children. Prices were a little on the toppy side for what was on offer,... More
